Default Ape Hangers

Has anyone put the apes on from the High ball kit? Is it hard to do yourself? How is the ride afterwards?

I did. You need the entire kit though, which includes the cables. I had a dealership install them. I love them.

Can you tell me what your over all cost was ? If you want, you can PM me the info. My dealer told me it would be about a grand.

I dont know the exact cost since it was done with the rest of the upgrades I was having installed. But I can tell you it was NOT a grand. The bars and cable are $470, that would put labor at $530...that is like 5 hours of labor. It should not take that long to install them. 2 hours max I would think.

It probably took me about 4 hours to do it myself, the instructions and procedure are pretty straight forward. I got mine discounted at 380 on tax free weekend so I got a steal,

and BTW the ride is so much better after. I was worried about my hands going numb and the like, but the bars are perfect height for me. Im 5'11" though.

also, off top[ic, but what model are you running? 8-ball is a trim level, like i have a vegas 8-ball, others have hammer 8-balls or even vision 8-balls. You can just edit your sig for future reference when people help you
